The Project

What this project involves

Your commitment to this project will involve:

  1. A 3-day workshop at your closest CSU campus, which will cover cyber security awareness and training.
  2. Participation in an online cyber security challenge (in teams of 4). We will provide training and mentoring for this.
  3. The chance to participate in a further 3-day workshop in Wagga Wagga (we will cover any travel costs). This will be awarded to the 4 best performing teams, and cover leadership and entrepreneurship. This workshop will provide an opportunity to learn what it’s like to develop a cyber security start-up and interact with some very successful women in cyber security.

All participants will receive a certificate of participation in the GiCSA project.

Award for the best performing team

The best performing team will also be awarded complimentary attendance to the Australian Information Security Association (AISA) National Conference 2020. This conference will be held in one of the major cities, likely to be Sydney or Melbourne.
